Lakebum, lemme give you a little crystal ball on your next

few years, as it pertains to boating.

Soon, you'll get married, and in the summer it's all boating, all the time. Your single friends slowly fade out of your life, and if you're lucky, you'll meet another married couple or two where you like both the guy and the girl. Maybe they come out on the boat some too, but whether it's solo or with friends, it's just 12 hours on the lake every day from Friday to Sunday for a few years. You're like "awesome, this will never change"

Then kid #1 comes. Wife doesn't feel like going out on the lake and she's worried about the baby getting too hot. Next thing you know, 3 years have passed and you might have taken the boat out a couple times a year by yourself.

Now kid number one is three and can handle a life jacket...maybe you've taken them to the pool and they seem to love the water. That's great----until kid #2 comes. Rinse and repeat on your time on the water for 3 more years.

Finally, you're six years down the road, kid 1 is 6, kid 2 is 3, and you're ready to resume boating.....great, until kid 1 starts having teeball and soccer games every Saturday. Maybe you're lucky and their league has practices/games during the week. Unfortunately that was also when you were doing your yardwork and house projects in an attempt to free up your weekends.

Bottom line, from the moment kid one pops out to the moment your youngest graduates high school, you're lucky to get 5 good weekends a year on the water. Sucks, but c'est la vie. You might even start to understand how these "boat membership" clubs do so well.

I was actually good to go through kid #2. I mean, wife wasn't SUPER happy with it but whatevs. This whole thing did not survive child 3.

*Note: I lived .5 mile from lake and rarely drank on boat...was a hard core fisherman. So like a "day" could have been 14 hours, could have been 5 hours for purposes of quantifying the 100 above.

Posted: Aug 30, 2016, 12:19 PM
 

differ is that I am a true lakebum, from a long line of lakebums. Travel soccer tournaments were missed in lieu of going to the lake. Growing up, it wasn't even an option. I wouldn't be shocked if my sisters and I swam before we walked. I've pretty much been driving boats my entire life, definitely since I can remember. My grandpa got me a jon boat when I was like 8 years old, and we wore that thing out going up and down the Seneca river.

Thankfully, my girlfriend loves the lake almost as much as me. There are days when she doesn't really want to go, but that's her problem, I still go. I can see children affecting it some, but not to that degree. If I had kids, they may not like the lake at first, but they'll learn to love it, because they won't have another option. They can quit going out to the lake when they're grown, but if that were the case I would be sincerely worried they weren't mine.

However, I don't think I'd be cool with letting kids run my life to the degree that many do. If little Omar(and that is what I will name my son) isn't going to be the next David Beckham, I don't see the point in spending our every weekend traveling gods creation for his tournaments.

you WILL be having kids much sooner than you think. ALL (nearly) men say the same thing. And the women will say the shat you want to hear.

Fast forward to about 1-2 years in marriage. I WANT KIDS I WANT KIDS I WANT KIDS MY CLOCK IS TICKING I WANT KIDS and so you have kids.

Omar may not be the next pele, no problem. You'll want a well rounded kid though right? I mean, you aren't going to crate him and put him on a boat 52 weeks/year. Will he have friends? Sleepovers? Go to birthday parties? Clemson games? Will he get to at least try a few sports? Baseball? Hoops? Football? Soccer? How about a bomb making class? Judo? Ghana have him in church? Maybe he gets into music, arts, hunting, camping, riding motorcycles. Guess what else....your family will be around more. And you'll be around them more. More time gone.

Your wife will start hanging out with Milfs that also have little Omars. They ghana get together and want to let the little Omars train for the jihad together while they lick each other's carpet.

I could go on and on and on man. Just wait, you'll see.

Act now. Cancel the wedding, ditch the girl, pawn the ring, and boatprofit forever.

rid yourself of daycare and they will spend it in other ways. TRUUUUUUUUUST me when I tellya they only continue to get more and more and more expensive.

Wait until they are in school with dress code (collared shirts) and they outgrow EVERYTHING THEY OWN every 6 months. Then all 7 of them will need some sweet new Nikes too.

Lunch money? Wait until you deposit $1000 in lunch money accounts for 3 kids in August and it's empty in March.

Sweatergod I spent $2000 on getting the kids back in school between fees, lunch money, clothes, supplies, etc.

I spent $13k in cold hard cash last year for daycare

then you'll have a teenager that will hit you up for $20 seemingly 4 times a week. A $300 grocery run is destroyed in about 4 days. Out to eat somewhere? Fast food, which is rare...seemingly impossible for under $30. A sitdown somewhere? $100. Every time.

lifestyle, which lakebum and his soon to be fiance both agree they will not be a part of. Sleepovers and what not can be done during the school year. Clemson games may be reserved for multi-millionaires at that point, so we may be out. I can see doing some sports, sure, but not these year round travel deals where you are forced to spend all of your disposable income and free time partaking in it. Also, my family lives on the lake. I could be down for more family time if they had a double slip dock.

but I treat a boat like I treat a lake house and season tickets anymore. Used to have all 3. Now I try to take every opportunity I can to fish or boat or hang at someone's lake house when invited. I go to every game I can and when I do I try to primo park and sit on the lower fiddy.

I just can't justify full ownership of any of those things based on usage anymore. Next time you take me out on your boat I'll buy all the beer and gas and prolly will bring you a new bong to show my appreciation. Much cheaper than keeping a boat I only use 5-8 times per year nomesayin?

But I also don't think it has to be a total game changer for every facet of your life, either. I know my parents didn't dedicate their every waking moment to whatever their kids wanted to do, we went to the lake on the weekends ######, and it wasn't up for debate. I'm sure their parents were the same way.

I'm sure a lot does change, but you don't have to do all of this other sheet, either. They won't even remember half of it when they grow up.

Correct that it is not a total game changer for every facet of your life. Also correct that you don't have to do everything the kids want to. I don't think most people fall into that bucket, that's a bit extreme.

It IS a total game changer in general though. You'll only understand when you get there.

to all these expensive touristy places before they are about 12 years old.

Do any of you remember great detailed joy from $3K family trips to Disney when you were 5? My parents took me and my brother to Washington DC for a week when I was about 8 to see all the historic sites. The only clear recollection I have from that trip is meeting my first homeless man on a park bench and how pissed my parents were that I decided to sit down and converse with him.

My kid memories are all from stuff I did around home - fishing, hunting, baseball, pets, riding bikes.

And those trips were a PIA to everyone.

IT'S EVERYTHING YOU DO THAT HAS ANY ELEMENT OF FUN ATTACHED TO IT.


I went from two practices during the week, playing a standing gig at a local bar on Thursday nights and running an open mic on Friday nights at another bar to looking at rusty strings on my dust-covered instruments years later when Joonyer went off to college and I decided to start playing regularly again. I also went to play golf every day after work once he went off to Clemson, and we started going out to shows and trying new restaurants or getting together with partying friends on weekends. It circles back around. BUT...I would not trade a single second of those days of raising the boy. There are plenty of painful moments, but even more great moments.

The funny thing for me now is that my lead guitarist and long time friend whose house we practice at and all the gear stays set up in his studio is a 56 year old first time father of a 2 year old daughter. We can only practice certain nights, after a certain time, and no drums after dark.

He'll be in a wheelchair and drooling on the gymnasium floor when his daughter graduates high school. At least, that's what we tell him every time the band practices.

But retire, he's already done that. He was off to work a couple of years ago during the last big ice storm here, guy in a brand new mustang tries to gun it to get up a big hill and comes sliding across and hits him driver's door to my buddy's front end. Buddy is driving an old Tahoe, and that saved him. Mustang boy was brain dead at the scene and they pulled his plug a few days later. I watched my buddy go through surgeries and rehab, and I can tell you the incredible insurance pay out that he got and hasn't worked since wasn't worth it. He could have long gone back to work, but doesn't have to, his wife is pretty highly sought after paralegal and works to keep benefits, but they both took a couple of years off without working and didn't suffer financially at all. He teaches a few guitar lessons, but he's mostly a stay at home Dad and an erstwhile aging rock star.

He'll probably live longer than if the accident had never happened and he HAD to work.

He managed a gym for years and was always in great shape. After a solid year of surgery and rehab, he walks with a limp, and can't last more than a couple of hours tops with a guitar strapped on. He almost never played acoustic until after the accident, but we now have an acoustic set so he can sit with a nice light guitar resting on his lap.

to stay married though. Although, it does seem to be a trend that is gaining momentum. You can have a healthy relationship without catering to your ladies every beck and call.

Personally, I like the give and take philosophy. For instance, I had to watch 2 hours of the bachelorette one night. In return, she has driven my drunk ### home from the lake all summer.

Here's the deal, in this scenario, one of us is pretty close to correct for how it'll be .

If you're right, you're clearly happy.

If I'm right, the good news is that it sounds like you'll be miserable, but in reality you'll still be loving every minute of it.

I have a 2.463 year old and I went fishing Friday and Saturday last week. We spent part of the day with McJunior on Sunday at the lake. No lake this week, but fishing and alligator hunting all next weekend. I bought my boat last year and probably have 60 hours on it?

I think we got ours around the same time

I got mine last January...Hit 210 hours this weekend. Now, I can definitely understand that amount of time going down, but not to 5 weekends a year.

Mine was May last year....210 is insane but I understand

it's not like you're fishing from it like I am. 1/2 of my hours are alligator hunting probably. Just think.... 210 hrs at 5.0 gph (cruising rough estimate). That is $2,100 in fuel in one year. Very impressive.

Well I said last January, I meant January of 2015

So really almost 2 full boating seasons. We stay on it a good bit, it's our little getaway. We love going out by the ### and just sitting as far away from shore as possible. I'd love to get an outboard so we could take it to the coast some.

That seems like the easy answer here.

few years I may be eligible for child abuse charges for not catering to their every whim. No thanks.

you won;t be able to afford to send them to college anyway, because it'll cost eleventeen brazillion dollars to even get a degree in coloring book by then.

lake so they can learn to hunt and fish. They'll be the only ones able to survive when a solar flair knocks out electricity,.

including a sweet new camera, a dying thirst to visit waterfalls, a convertible VW Golf, and a yearning to drive aimlessly around in North Carolina.

Oh so now that we're not being sarcastic

being divorced has been great other than only seeing the kids half the time. I've done more, gone more places / on vacations, gone to more Clemson games, bought more toys, been more stress free, gotten higher evals and raises at my job, and overall happier than I ever was married and I did that chit for 15 yrs.

No the camera isn't shiny and new but I use it more now than ever, The S2000 has been fun as #### to drive and Im glad I afforded myself the opportunity to buy it, the hiking all over the foothills of SC and blue ridge of NC is a rewarding way to spend my free time.


So yes being single (mounted) is much betting than being married (having sex, as you put it)
